Sheriff's office investigating 'suspicious death' of 2-year-old boy

SYCAMORE TWP, Ohio - Officials are still looking for answers Tuesday after a 2-year-old boy died in Sycamore Township Monday.

First responders were called to the Village Green Mobile Home Park, located at 7501 School Road around 2:45 p.m. Monday. The call came out as a child not breathing.

When rescuers arrived, they transported 2-year-old James Lee Livsay to Bethesda North Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Officials are calling the death "suspicious."

Neighbors tell 9 News that there was trouble in the home and that a man and a woman there routinely fought.

"You could be sitting out here and you would hear them fighting.  They were out throwing pots and pans once.  I mean, it is really disturbing but what else can you do around here?" said neighbor Kyle Kelly.

Deputies have not arrested anyone but are interviewing a person of interest.

The sheriff's office says the cause and manner of death will be determined by the coroner's office. The Hamilton County Coroner's Office has not released a cause of death.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
